$950,000 USD

Bare Necessities, formerly Orca Blue, is the third hull in the Northwest's award winning lineup. Truly a self-sufficient, capable vessel, able to take you safely, comfortably, and stylishly to the far reaches of the Inside Passage, Mexico, or beyond. Boat house kept for the first 10 years of her life and subsequently moored in a covered fresh water slip for the past three years, many who board her cannot believe she is not a new, freshly launched boat. Current owners, just like the original prior owners, have lovingly and meticulously cared for her and hope the next owners will care for her just as much. This is a "must-see" boat.

Additional Information

Northwest Trawlers are constructed using vinyl ester resins throughout, not just in the outer layers. Unlike polyester resins, vinyl ester resins can stretch up to 5% before fracturing. Hull #3 was constructed using a uni-molding process that builds the boat with only 5 major molded components. This limits any secondary bonding and provides a much stronger integrated structure with little chance of stress cracking as there is little or no filler needed.
